Trump’s lawyer tweets photo of daughter in lingerie, then defends the move by calling ‘haters’ ‘jealous’ after outrage

Michael Cohen

President Donald Trump’s lawyer tweeted a photo of his daughter wearing racy lingerie — and then called those who criticized him “jealous.”

On Sunday, Trump’s high-profile personal attorney Michael Cohen tweeted a photo of his college-aged daughter Samantha Blake Cohen wearing a black bra and sheer pantyhose for a modeling shoot inspired by an iconic photo of pioneering model and actress Edie Sedgwick.


When people on Twitter called the decision to post the photo “creepy” and “inappropriate”, Cohen fired back by asking one of the posters if she was “jealous” and calling some of the others “haters” and “a-holes.”



Trump’s one-time comments that he would date Ivanka if she were not his daughter were also used as fodder against Cohen’s post. Others pointed out that channeling Sedgwick, who stood for female empowerment, was ironic given Trump’s track record of trying to defund Planned Parenthood, and bragging about sexually assaulting women in a tape from 2005 that leaked during the campaign.



Cohen is a former Trump Organization executive who served as a cable television surrogate for the Republican during the presidential campaign. Both before and after the election, Cohen has frequently been described as Trump’s “pitbull.”
